apple pie

While shopping at Eastern Market, we bought some apples to bake pie. We chose a mix of sweet and tart varieties. However, before we could enjoy a pie I felt compelled to paint the apples. I was paticularly drawn to the color variations in the red apple and the leaves on the greeen apple.

This was painted in oil on stretched canvas. It was fun to paint the shadows and reflections on the apples. Looking at this now, I don't remember if the red apple was lopsided or not but I think I'll repaint left side to give it a more pleasing shape.
